The 4 priorities of the Bristol All Age Carers Strategy
The following strategic priorities were created by carers with support from Bristol Carers Voice and later endorsed by the Health and Wellbeing Board, for which Bristol City Council is a member, in July 2021:
Early identification, recognition, respecting and valuing of children, young people and adults who are in caring roles.
Proactive assessment or understanding of the needs of children, young people and adults who are in caring roles. Their own needs for a life outside caring are fully understood, which includes cultural needs, education, employment, health, social and care needs.
All carers in Bristol can access the most appropriate information, advice and support at the time they need it, for themselves and the person they care for.
All children, young people and adults who are in caring roles have opportunities to influence policy making, service planning and current services, through a strong independent voice.
